Start of the Ballycotton 5 Mile Summer Series...

The 1st race in the Ballycotton Summer Series starts next Thursday, the 24th of May in Ballyandreen at 8pm. This is one of the most popular races in Cork and gets about 250-300 entrants every year.

If you are new to the running scene in Cork, Ballyandreen can be a bit hard to find. The easiest way is probably to head towards Ballycotton first (via Midleton/Cloyne/Shanagarry). As you enter the outskirts of Ballycotton, you will see a small church on the right. Take this right, stay on this road for about 3-4 kms and then left at the first crossroads. The parking area is about 800 metres from the sign on so arrive early and give yourself plenty of time.

The other 3 races in the series are on the 4th Thursday of June, July and August.
